I'd really like to get my hands on a Shibata Tinker. I'm interested in shark teeth, sabre teeth, or tank. Anyone have one they are willing to part with?

Knifewear has them on their garage sale site, not always 100% accurate tho. I’d still wake up early on the 8th, if they’re available it’s a hard to find piece.

If other knives and lately stones didn’t keep getting in the way, I’d like a tinker tank myself.

If you know a retailer who orders from him is your best chance. Reason why people won't sell because it comes as a set with the sabertooth since they both get the same number. What usually happens is 2 people will pay for it and split which knife they want to keep.

So the sabretooth, shark tooth, and tank are all a set?

I found a Tank and a shark teeth Deba. I'm still interested in locating the Sabre Teeth if anyone comes up with a lead, let me know. The waiting list from Shibata directly is over a year long.

Incorrect they do not come as a set. Saber tooth is similar to a hanging butcher knife shape, shark tooth is a Deba,tank is well a tank lol. I order these often for customers.

That sabre tooth (first one) looks like a potentially very interesting butcher / meat trimming knife. Nice profile.

Yes I am 110% sure , point 1. Yours are all different dates . Point 2 they are all diffrent batch numbers. I have order them in matched sets before but unless requested they don't come that way. I assume you bought these individually on diffrent days.

Man I just used one of those giant knives another chef had at work like the tinker tank. Now I’m on the hunt too!

What are these knives classified as? Like Sakai Takayuki has those one by Togashi?

What do we call these or classify as?
